Obama campaign to media: Stop letting Romney off the hook!!!
Specifically, Axelrod argued at length that the Romney campaign has been operating from a double standard. Romney aides defend him against Dem attacks on his record as Governor of Massachusetts by pointing out that he inherited an economy losing jobs, and that this shouldn’t detract from the assessment of the true impact of his policies. This, even as they slam Obama over the “net” job loss on his watch.
“Go back to the Romney campaign and ask them about this extraordinary double standard,” Axelrod said on the call.
“Ask them how it is that they should exempt Governor Romney’s first years in office because he had to encounter a recession far less deep than the one the president had to face,” Axelrod continued.
“The’ve painted themselves into a corner here,” Axelrod concluded. “Now that double standard is clear, and they’re going to have to explain it to the American people.” Steve Benen has a roundup of the relevant quotes from Romney aides that illustrate the double standard.
